Hi Paul,

No offense to Dick, but I might be able to follow your explanation a little easier. Maybe we are on the same wavelength or something after having so many discussions together (*smile*). You said:

>>>It is both. It is reductionist in that it reduces all of physics to mathematics. I am convinced that your result is a theorem of probability theory. I still intend to try to convince you of that.>It is non-reductionist in that it only models the 'physical layer' as your title "The Foundations of Physical Reality" implies. The word 'only' is appropriate because, as you have told me, your discovery says nothing whatsoever about the 'observer' or the "I" as in "what can I possibly know for sure".>It is this last thing (the 'observer' or the 'I' or whatever you want to call it) which I hold as fundamental in my picture of what-in-the-heck-is-going-on?
